You may bring chairs, blankets, umbrellas, towels, and cameras. Coolers, pets and pop up tents are not allowed. All food and drinks must be purchased at the festival, and no outside food is allowed.
The festival will be held under the 26,000 square foot structured tent to protect guests from the weather, so whether it’s sunny or rainy you will be comfortable.
The Inaugural Annapolis Irish Festival was held in 2011. Since that time it has become an Annapolis tradition and a regional favorite event thanks to the support of the business community who enjoy the Irish traditions and Celtic culture. In the past few years many businesses sponsored this Festival, and close to $30,000 each year was donated to local non-profits in the Annapolis community.
There will be 3 stages of entertainment throughout the event all day and night. They are the Shamrock Stage, the Fado Hill Stage and the Galway Bay Pavilion. Plus the kids have their own stage of music at Leprechaun Land. There will be music for everyone’s enjoyment.
The 2016 Annapolis Irish Festival will host over 70 vendors, the famous Little Leprechaun Land and again benefit the Hospice of the Chesapeake as well as many other non-profits in the community. The Annapolis Irish Festival will continue to give thousands of dollars to non-profits in the community after this year’s festival.
Be sure to buy your tickets early and wear your green!
